Apple Picking

On our trip to Ontario, we took the kids apple picking.

Endless rows of apple trees lined the fields; each tree bursting with ripe fruit. Thousands of apples for the taking.

The kids took turns climbing onto their father’s shoulders, reaching for the highest, reddest apples they could find. We filled a barrel to bring home: apple pie, apple crisp, apple muffins…

And we savoured the sweet, crisp taste of apples straight from the tree.

Apples in the Fog

Apples in the Fog

The fog is thick during my afternoon walk. It mutes the world and softens details. Distracting backgrounds disappear.

Because of this, I was able to focus more closely on what I passed by.

The apples below this tree, scarlet and scattered, were so pretty that I just had to capture this image before I moved on.
